Leonardo DaVinci

May 31, 2010 2 comments

We have been doing some life drawing in the classroom today – fully clothed! Leonardo DaVinci was one of the first artists to really understand and show the proportions of the human body – how big the head is, how long the arms are in relation to the rest of the body.

What interesting relationships are there between the sizes of different parts of the body?

Unapproved World Cup Song because of Racism

May 28, 2010 5 comments

This is an unaproved version of the World Cup song sung by Shakira. It was unapproved because it wasnt sung by an African and the SAF Commitee wanted an African to sing it so K’naan stood up and sang Waving Flag which I put up earlier.

I cant take any action on this matter but I can say to the SAF that you are being racist and not accepting a song better than the chosen one.

P.S.
1. I like it more than Waving Flag.

Need Help!

For the hydroponics I’m going to plant the small seedlings on thursday. I need your help to do this. I will appreciate if anyone comes and help. It will only take a few minutes and we won’t get wet. This crop will be Thai vegetables so it will grow quickier than salad so we can harvest on the last week of school.

Here is the latest question to make you think:

In three bowling games, Alice scores 139, 143, and 144.

What score will Alice need in a fourth game in order to have an average score of 145 for all four games?

Extending the “Together We Can” Slogan

May 25, 2010 2 comments

6SS have been thinking about what is needed in order for Thailand to emerge from the current situation as a better and stronger country. Today, we shared all of our ideas for how to extend the “Together We Can” slogan that was used to generate interest in the “Big Cleanup” on Sunday. The  students discussed what all of the causes of last week’s events were and tired to look behind the media, the gossip, the rumours and the colours.

By sharing their ideas they have formed seven new slogans:

“Together we can rethink about the choices we make.”

“Together we can all have a voice.”

“Together we can respect and care for eachother.”

“Together we can earn the trust of other people in the world.”

“Together we can make Thailand a cleaner place than before.”

“Together we can bring back the land of smiles.”

“Together we can correct our mistakes.”

A question for our audience: what do you think about these slogans? What effect do you think they could have? Could they be improved? Are they clear enough?
